Arctic Spas are a manufacturer/distributor and retailer of Hot Tubs. Established in Canada in 1994 and launched in Europe in May 2000, they have built a dealer network throughout the world of over 200 retailers who sell over 16,000 spas per year.
The European distribution centre based in Worcestershire is headed up by partner David Martin and was created to service and distribute Hot Tubs to authorised dealerships throughout Europe.
David has taken this a step further and has opened up Arctic Spas corporate stores both in the UK and in Europe. Arctic Spas felt, that in order for them to show dealers what was needed to be a success they had to do it themselves, so they made the mistakes dealers wouldn’t have to. This has been one of the ingredients for their success and the 200 or so dealers are reaping the benefits. Couple this with the World’s most reliable engineered hot tub, they have a recipe for success other companies just don’t have. A firm believer in putting back into the community, Arctic has sponsored many local and international sports over the years, along with being involved in charities worldwide. Arctic Spas not pick the sports or charities indiscriminately they really need to know they are making a difference. At a time when most companies are pulling back from sponsorships and charities, Arctic believe this is the time when it is needed most, therefore they still continue commit to the local area and further abroad.
